We recently began the summer session of my new online courses. We announced a scholarship and were so moved by the personal statements and bios that we decided to award a few scholarships for the summer session. Below is the bio and an excerpt from the personal statement of Dalia Fakash, a teacher from Turkey and Syria, who was the recipient of the Methodologies for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages course scholarship. I’m excited about her contributions and the perspectives she will share in our Google+ Community.
You can still register until July 12th for the summer session of any of the online accredited courses offered by Edtechnology Specialists and Andrews University.

Personal Statement Excerpt: Having to live and work as a refugee in a Forgein country requires a lot of work and effort to support oneself and the family.
